Sometimes a painting evolves over several years , put away in my planchest to be kept safe, looked at often, then the day comes when I'm inspired to continue with it.
"Held in Love and Hope" is one of those paintings. I worked on it during the first lockdown and the imagery in it seemed to get more and more poignant. All of us staying in our homes to protect the people we love the most , people we don't know at all and our precious NHS.
We were all connected by the global crisis but affected by it very differently.
